Lots and lots!

I went out and looked tonight for you. I don't know exactly: there are too many littering the landscape - I can't count the forest because of all the trees in the way ... biggrin.gif mrgreen.gif


The north side of my house is one garden of my "Old Plants": all plants (except one) are 5 feet tall or more (I think Jack is 7 feet tall ...)
Bild: http://seamac.info/cupboard/garage/garden/200706/20070630northgarden.jpg
13 Plants north side in an eight inch pot or bigger. That number is exact.


The east side of my house is the big garden: with this crazy 8 foot tree
Bild: http://seamac.info/cupboard/garage/garden/200708/calvinandcarl.gif

and about 18 - 25 more 'teenage plants' (Like 6 foot 6 inch "Sally" and her twin brother 6 foot 3 inch "Sammy") ranging in size from one foot to almost 7 feet above their dirt line in their pots.

And then 20 to 30 'baby plants' in 3" pots.

About a dozen to 20 plants bigger than me (3 or 4 bigger than me in 7 months: San Diego weather). And about a dozen more of those are above my waist.

From 50 - 70 Plants "About 60 Plants" grow for me: some have chosen to grow VERY FAST!!!!

Cuttings.

Thousands of Cuttings!

All year around I give away cuttings. Just come to see me: I give Salvia away.

I MUST Give away them: no more room in garden for more trees ...

Lately I give away 4 foot tall plants - so few people drive to see me I give trees instead of cuttings.

Clear the yard out: but too slowly - the plants are piling up.

San Diego warmth and sunshine makes them grow very VERY Fast!

Your post made me laugh.

"See that? Why can't you guys grow like Sea Mac's plants?"

Because San Diego has insanely great weather, nice and warm, all year around: with winter light levels about where your summer light levels are, I'd reckon. And Our Summer light levels would kill unprotected Salvia plants: they get plenty of reflected light from surrounding buildings underneath that tarp. (and even I think they are growing like they are charmed ...)
No rain here in 4 months now ... And it's really too warm for them to be happy here this time of the year ...

"You need some great big banks of Grow Lights around us, if you expect a meter of growth in 2 months, out of us!" yeah "And Bigger pots too!" your plants just said ...

_______________________________________________________________________________

You remember the 3 pictures I posted of that 'baby plant' Sw004?

(She took the name "Sally" and I call her that every day: Bild: http://www.salvia-community.net/style_images/1/folder_post_icons/icon12.gif Bild: http://www.salvia-community.net/style_images/1/folder_post_icons/icon12.gif "Sally, I Love You!" Bild: http://www.salvia-community.net/style_images/1/folder_post_icons/icon12.gif Bild: http://www.salvia-community.net/style_images/1/folder_post_icons/icon12.gif)

According to my careful records: that plant was the end of a long branch - that was removed about 5 PM on January 31st, 2007 - from the JOLLY GREEN GIANT PLANT itself! (you know which one I mean ... )

On May 24th Sally was 26 inches high (66 cm) above the dirt level in her pot! (3 months and 3 weeks old. Two feet two inches tall)
Bild: http://seamac.info/cupboard/garage/garden/200705/20070524sallyis26inches.jpg

On June 13th (3 weeks Later) she is now 41 Inches tall (105 cm) above the dirt level in her pot
Bild: http://seamac.info/cupboard/garage/garden/200706/20070613sallyis41inches.jpg

And then on August 21st she's at 78 inches above the dirt level in her pot (2 Meters) and rises above me (about 2.34 meters above the cement the pot is on): I'm 5' 8" and can look up on the undersides of top leaves for caterpillars now without disturbing her!

She's just a baby plant still - in my book - because she is not even 7 months old yet ... but she grows a meter in the last 2 months!
Bild: http://seamac.info/cupboard/garage/garden/200708/20070821sallyis78inchestall.jpg

The Topic was "How fast does it grow?" and I posted pictures and measurements to show you ... and apparently the answer is "Up to a METER in 2 Months!"

Goodbye Sally: I'll send "Jack" over - in a couple of months from now - to climb you up to the Giant's Castle in the clouds - and there Jack will steal a Magic Harp and a goose that lays golden eggs... mrgreen.gif I'm sure to get a cut ...

Now you be good and don't knock any aircraft down on your way up to the clouds ... w00t.png mrgreen.gif rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif No going through any Jet Intakes allowed! (/Fractured Fairy Tale)

________________________________________________________________________________


I can't Mail her, OR lug her, away now - she's gotten too big. I guess she'll have to stay here in the Sacred Green Garden with me and I'll worship them - and with the honor of growing the Green Goddess - at their feet - Errr ... roots!

Now where am I going to put several more 7 Foot trees as they spread out over the next year?

HELP! I'm drowning in TOO Many Salvia Plants!

I listed a few plants for sale in the Local classifieds - and SOLD them!

I'm thinking seriously about commercial growing now.

Sorry: Can't ship overseas! (Yet)

And how do you propose I box and mail this?

He's grown into the Tarp now - I've got to cut him back. He is almost as twice as tall as me.

How Fast Does It Grow?

Depending on Ambient Light Levels: 1/8" to 1/4" (3 mm to 6 mm) per day.

If supported: she can grow 2 to 3 meters high.

"Dearie" in front and "Darling" hiding behind her ....

What sort of harvested yield to expect?

Depending on Ambient Light Levels!

If you let a small plant grow 1 year without harvesting:
Bild: http://sageseeds.info/cupboard/photos/garden/salvia/2013/06/superplant.jpg

It has a chance to grow larger leaves:
Bild: http://sageseeds.info/cupboard/photos/garden/salvia/2013/06/footlongpetiole.jpg

Some over a foot long:
Bild: http://sageseeds.info/cupboard/photos/garden/salvia/2013/06/sixteeninchleaf.jpg
(14 Inches active solar collection surface! Sun of a beech: that's some record holder there!)

2 or 3 bundles like this:
Bild: http://sageseeds.info/cupboard/photos/garden/salvia/2013/06/bigleatheryleavesquid.jpg

And leave half the leaves on the plant:

Very nice plants and thank you very much for sharing your garden with us! smile.gif
Beautiful pictures you have made and nice idea to animate some of them. biggrin.gif
One of my favourite animated picture is where you had been hiding behind your Salvia forest, but to be honest I like all of them. Nice work.
Are you using the leafes for phychodelic experiences? (I think so)

Greets from Germany bye.gif

I saw the other pictures from the posted link and I just have to repeat what a nice garden you had lay out.

Thank You!

The Garden I had in 2008/2009 was larger and nicer ... yes. But this Garden is starting off OK after about a Year and a Half here.

I use the leaves ... but it always takes me to the same box and puts me in it. So I am bored of it: and dead leaves pile up under the trees. You would cry if you saw all the wasted sacred leaves.

I do like making the animated pictures.

I have a few Hummingbirds from 2006 Here. (I have made over 50 more Hummingbird pictures but have not added them yet.)

And there are animations of Large Machines Here.

I can imagine how many leafes you have to "waste", but with such big plants it is not surprising. How you should use them all? It´s a way too much...

These pictures are nice too and good job to let some of them look like they are "endless". smile.gif

Did you see these Hummingbirds in your garden or just on another place?
It seems you have many running projects with own web pages?

"How you should use them all?"

As Compost, I guess ... </ heresy>

"Endless" photos ...
People with the Type of "OCR" that compels them to count every car on a Train just LOVE my "Movie" of a freight train!

All of my "Animoshuns" are shot by me, from Tripod mounted Camera: of subjects right in front of me (Except the ones I AM In!).

Those hummingbirds and feeders are the one's from 2006 (at the old house) ... I have Animoshuns and stills from the most recent feeders and birds also.

Yes: I own 6 domains. I build web pages ALL the Time! Links to 4 of my web sites are in my Signature.

My web site I AM most proud of is Software Santa: mrgreen.gif http://softwaresanta.com/sssmf/ this one you might find most useful .... No Thing is for sale there. mrgreen.gif

I just became Addicted for Life to Cubosphere - a fun free puzzle with 450 levels! I finished the Tutorial episode and then I finished The "Egypt" and "Antarctica" episodes. (I have a combined score of 60.500 on both.)

I have a Job in July that keeps me busy. devil.png I help out and work for a Show: http://www.comic-con.org/cci laugh.gif
